PROTECTED CARD CANNOT DELETE PICTURE


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

White lines on image however when capturing on dark areas and on video mode, it produce a perfect image


Not clear when you have white lines. While looking on the screen or really on a image.
Lots of camera's produce lines on the LCD, when using the LCD to frame the picture. Special when there are small and sharp lights in the image. But the sensor is not capturing that while making the picture. It is a sort of smear on the screen.
Also, when you try to make a picture in bright lights, you can get flares, but those you can see on the screen and in the picture. To fight flares, most camera's and lenses come with sun hoods. Your camera does not have a hood, so try to avoid shining bright lights on the front of the lens.

Hello, On the C743 this will require that the LCD unit be replaced. This will get very costly real quick unless you can do it yourself. Not much more I can tell you.

I cant take photos anymore and the LCD screen says CARD'S WRITE PROTECT SWITCH IS SET TO LOCK.How can i solve this problem?


You didn't specify the make and model of your camera, so I'm going to assume it uses SD and/or SDHC cards.
SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
If this doesn't do it, try another card.

When trying to clear out my camera... there is a black screen & it'll say this picture cannot be deleted when i try to delete. taking up space that i would like to use


Make sure the picture you can't remove isn't locked. When you're in review press menu and make sure that photo isn't set to locked (if so unlock and you should be able to delete it).
If that doesn't help, make sure you copy off all the images on the card you want, as the following instructions are intended to clear the entire card.
After you transfer all the images you want, you'll want to format the memory card. This can be done one of two ways. If you have the appropriate card reader on your PC, you can insert the card, find it in my computer. Then right click it and select format.
The easier way is to use your camera's format feature. I don't have that specific model, but it can usually either be found in menu, or by pressing the picture review button and then menu. Formatting the card should erase all the data on it and clear off the picture you don't want.
Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

My digital camera says card write protected. changes many memory cards still the camera says card protected i slide the switch of the mmc up and down the screen still says card protected and i can't take...


Hello ranmer 9960:
First lets try the card in your PC to make sure the card is working. If it is working in the PC then its probable that the camera is not reading the lock switch correctly. Lets try setting the protection lock switch on the card in between the locked and unlocked position. If that doesn't work then we can try putting some electrical tape (because its thicker than cellophane tape) over the lock switch on the card This may help your cameras lock switch reader function correctly. Make the piece of tape wide enough to cover the lock switch on the card but don't cover the copper contacts.
Try these suggestions and if it works then give the thumbs up a click.
If not we can try something else.

I am unable to take a picture, the screen says protected card. How can I clear this?


Pull the memory card out, along one edge you will notice a small switch slide it over to unlock the card. The switch that is furthest from the contact is in the locked position so no pictures are erased.
